KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan soldier attacked his coalition allies with a rocket-propelled grenade and other weapons early yesterday, killing three British troops and wounding four more before fleeing, officials said.The Taliban claimed the soldier then fled to an insurgent-controlled area, surrendered to them and was taken to a “safe place”. Their account could not be independently confirmed, and the motive of the attack remained unclear.Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron condemned the killings as “appalling”, but insisted the incident should not change the strategy of working alongside the Afghan army.
